CrossFire is our new product for the Akai Fire and Live 10.0.6 or later. Fire is a very cool little controller and CrossFire enables it to be used as powerful control surface for Live. You can learn more about the product here.
Why is CrossFire being beta tested? CrossFire is a different sort of product than others we've done. Specifically, it aims to offer a similar workflow to what you'd find when using Fire with FL Studio. So, we'd like to do a short term public beta test to gather feedback. Please share your thoughts on the product in this thread.
So how I can take part in the beta? You can purchase CrossFire at a discounted price from Isotonik Studios. Of course, your purchase entitles you to free updates and support for the life of the product.
Using ClyphX Pro and M4L? Here's an M4L device that adds a ClyphX Pro mode to CrossFire. You can enter/exit the mode by holding down Alt and pressing Step. This will be added to ClyphX Pro in the next update. ClyphX Pro for CrossFire v1.0.0.amxd (65.93 KB)
Hi! Because I needed to change my liveset-concept a little bit, I'm now in need for a 16 track-device. Searching for this I found the Akai Fire and now your script . I think I gonna purchase a Fire tomorrow for trying it out - I am mainly interested in the performance mode Do you think it would be possible to stack up multiple fires with the script anytime - or is this not in the concept?
Ok cool, thanks! I got me one of those this morning and just bought your script, so far it seems to work good (with a blank project) and is almost self-explanatory ^^. Now I am going to test the device in my live-setup to get an idea if 16x4 is large enough to maintain an overview of my current set situation . I have to get into clyphx pro script linking anyway because I want to sync Push, Launchpad and now the Fire
Everything seems to work nicely, big up Some feature ideas came to my mind while using it:
- could you make the "alt" state of the performance mode lockable - so that i can use it to interact with all my 16 tracks easily - to make this more useful it woould be nice to color the first row corresponding to the current track color - total bonus: "stop clip" could be indicating playing clips by pulsating
I'll look into the first two points for the next update (after the release of v1.0.0). On the last point, that isn't likely as I'd like to keep CrossFire as simple as possible and not have dependencies on other products like ClyphX Pro. I will keep it in mind however.
